The Baltic region is home to the largest known deposit of amber, called Baltic amber, with about 80% of the world's known amber found here. It dates from between 35 to 40 million years ago (Eocene Early Oligocene). The term Baltic amber is generic, so amber from the Bitterfeld mines in Germany (which is only 20 million years old) goes under the same name. Because Baltic amber contains about 8% succinic acid, it is also termed Succinite. It was thought since the 1850s that the resin that became amber was produced by the tree Pinites succinifer, but research in the 1980 came to the conclusion that the resin originates from several species.
Providing that amber articles are taken proper care they will never lose their beauty, originality and value. Since ancient times amber and its preparations have been used in medicine. Less is known about the role of amber in astrology.
If you're looking for the classic set of pearls, look to Akoya cultured pearls. The Akoya is the most popular pearl, commonly seen in pearl strands and in earrings.
While industry wide there is no standardized grading for Akoya pearls,
Akoya pearls are the specialty of Japanese pearl farms. The first pearls to be cultured early in the 1920s, their white colour and rosé overtone complement a fair complexion. Because Akoya pearls are a high-quality pearl, you'll find them set with 18k gold posts and clasps, and you'll find they are well matched for size, shape, and colour. You'll also find few blemishes and a deep, beautiful luster.
You may notice that the Akoya looks very similar to the Freshwater pearl. When compared side-by-side, the difference is clear. Akoya pearls are on average larger, smoother, rounder, and more lustrous than Freshwater pearls. If you're looking for a remarkable gift, choose a gift of Akoya cultured pearl jewellery.
